Getting Your Essex House Prepared For Sale

As we recover from the impact of COVID, the property market has continued to remain robust and is bustling. Due to the lockdown periods, buyer demand continues to outstrip supply. This means the typical seasonality of quieter and busier months is simply not applicable.

Usually, spring is a great time to put your  home on the market and sell it quickly. That is because people tend to be open to viewings in happier weather rather than in the midst of freezing winter, but buyer demand means advertising your home in quieter listing months gives you a distinct advantage and the opportunity to secure a premium price. Basically, any time is a good time to sell right now!

Before your agent lists your  home, you must make sure it looks its best. Assess your living space and look at it as though you are a buyer. You can then double-check this list of staging tips for ensuring that no crucial details were overlooked.


Remove the clutter

Clear up your countertops, bookcases, garages and closets. 

Pack every beautiful item you own

Right from personal photos to knick-knacks, everything  that you want to keep must be boxed up.

Procure a storage unit

Clear up some space with the moving of furniture and boxes into storage, which will augment your room’s size. 

Finish minor repairs

Ensure no leaks, all doors close properly, and any holes in the walls get patched. 

Beautify it! 

Note that the windows, floors as well as bathrooms must sparkle. Remember to dust each surface, hang up fresh towels in the bathroom and ensure that the place smells great. 

Don’t forget the garden

How your garden looks will create the first impression. Hence, mow it, wash the walkways and decorate the place with yellow flowers.


There are many ways to ensure that your home holds an advantage over the competition. Your property’s overall look will accelerate the process of selling. Please call on 01277 564022 or email at [email protected] for more information about how to get your property ready to sell!
